Here is one I like .

The Miles Auto-Bio is great , but you might want to also read an outside source on him also .

I am surprised no one has brought up " The Bear Comes Home " by Rafi Zabor. I have bought, read, and given away multiple copies over the last 15 years. Here's the short synopsis:

Two jazz musicians / street performers are trying to scrape by in NYC. One ( Jones ) is kind of a wash-out but does his best to take care of his best friend, a brilliant but troubled poet / beatnik / saxophone player who also happens to be a bear. An actual Shakespeare-quoting, jazz-obsessed, hard-to-handle bear who has a tendency to wander the streets of NYC in an oversized raincoat and floppy hat with his sax in tow seeking love, God, and a safe place to jam.
